That's really what it looks like under a microscope too — fuuuuuuuck nature!

Oh, sure, “the world is a beautiful place” and “look for peace all around you” and “happiness is a mindset” — those are baloney. Not true! As if!

Because if what’s happening down in Louisiana right now — and in fact other places at any given time throughout the year — is true, then we're all living in a literal hell. And each one of us are vying for a spot to hold the handle on a ride down in the hand basket.

Swimming around in the water people drink in St. Bernard Parish, Louisiana, is a brain-eating amoeba called Naegleria fowleri. The find has prompted the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals to undergo a 60-day chlorine “burn” to get rid of it …

RUN LOUISIANA! … (to somewhere other than Colorado, naturally …)

“The burn is being conducted ‘out of caution,’” says Yahoo! Health, “adding that the tap water is safe to drink because you cannot become ill by drinking infected water. However, they warn that residents should avoid getting water in their noses because it can infect people via that route. It travels up the nose and into the brain, where it typically causes an infection of the lining around the brain (meningitis) and inflammation of the brain (encephalitis). Symptoms often include severe headaches, fever, and a stiff neck.”

Oh, great, it won’t do anything if you drink it, but if you get it up your nose, like you do, oh we don’t know … when you drink water? It will definitely kill you dead. Apparently Louisiana officials forgot to include a “dying death of destruction” amongst those other livable symptoms of the amoeba.

But we don't want to freak anyone out — far be it from us to rabble a few rousers behind a statistically rare occurrence. Per the chart below, there's still other things to worry about more so than a fucked up looking amoeba eating your brain. Like coconuts. Ruuuuuuuuun!

– and that photo way above us? The freaky looking one? Yep, that's what it really looks like under a microscope — fuuuuuuuck nature!
